As this semester draws to a close this week and students are taking their exams, please take a minute to read a letter from Mr. Dorman. Sam Houston's first semester has been successful in many ways and we want to make sure that our students continue to strive for their best. Our HMS team would like to thank all Sam Houston families for a great start to our year! The letter from our principal will help in looking ahead to the second half of our year and outline the expectations for our students as they learn to exhibit grit in not only their studies, but their continued character development. Thank you again for a great semester and please remind your students to study for their exams!
Students will be taking semester exams this week and will be following a modified schedule. Please use the above link to view the adjusted schedule for Wednesday and the EARLY RELEASE schedule for Thursday and Friday. Please remind students to study all review materials provided by their teachers in order to end the first semester successfully.
